100 Random Movies I Love (That I Not-So-Secretly Hope You Love Too)

I haven’t done an “100 Things” list in awhile so I decided to be lazy and picked an easy one for me to do.

I tried to stay away from movies that would have been considered box office hits when they were in theaters and also movies that I’m pretty sure a lot of people have seen but as I started randomly picking movies from my DVD collection and Netflix rentals past the rules became fuzzy.

I’m not saying these are all good or great movies. Some of them are. Some of them are pretty bad but I find them incredibly watchable. I’m not saying that I’ll hold it against you if you don’t like, hate or haven’t even seen any of these movies. But if you love them too…cool.

  1. LOVED The Long Kiss Goodnight. The scene where she’s trying to figure out who she was in the kitchen with her family, then she starts chopping the food with her knife like she was Yan Can Cook — “I must have been a chef!!!” — cracks me up to this very day.

  2. I loved King of Kong. It might have been the best movie I saw last year.

    I haven’t seen a lot of movies on this list :/

  3. Why have I only seen half of these movies?

    More pressing, why/how was the Cutting Edge left off this list? Tooooooeeee pick.

  4. Good call on the Cutting Edge. And how come No Bring It On?????? Elizha Dushku and Gabrielle Union in cheerleader outfits ALONE should have made it a no-brainer..

  5. I’m bored… so i googled random movies (which i tend to do from time to time) and came across this article full of some movies i’ve watched and LOVED, some i’ve wanted to watch but never ended up watching… and others i’ve never heard of and am interested in watching
    NEVER heard of ‘My Life Without Me’ but the title seemed intriguing, i watched it and loved it.
    Just finished another year of University so i’m on my little vacation now and will be making my way through the movies i’ve never heard of…
